Good Questions: A Year of Open-Ended Problems for Grades 5-8

 

img_3603.jpgHello all!

I am pleased to say that — beyond spending every day on the water this summer — I DID manage to create a new teacher resource for my intermediate colleagues.

This time, it’s a stand up calendar of problems — one for every day of the school year!

This compact but potent book comes with an easel so you can set it up on your desk and flip from one rich problem to the next, posing open-ended questions of your intermediate students.

Good Questions: A Year of Open-Ended Tasks is a problem-a-day resource that includes
rich tasks ideal for grades 5, 6, 7 and 8. Organized by topic and structured in problem sets of 5 or more, this simple to use teacher resource includes 210 mathematically important questions to engage your students in deep thinking. For only $25, it’s a perfect back-to-school gift for yourself!

Proportional reasoning, measurement, operations and algebra are featured in this calendar of problems. Each one engages students in thinking flexibly, critically and creatively in the face of important and challenging mathematics.

Let the problem-solving begin!

  1. Wonderful! This is what I w been looking for!… except for a bit younger—grades 2/3. Will you be making some for that age group?

  2. Hi there Angela!

    Ha! Yes… you guessed it… a book for younger students is indeed in the works.
    I hope to have it done before I present at the Northwest Math Conference in Whistler in October. Stay tuned!
